As you may know, the version number of 0.6.0 has been kept for nearly one year’s time though MediaCoder has been improved consistently during this period of time. I admit that I am quite conservative on the increase of version number of MediaCoder. Anyway after one year, I finally decided to increase the version number soon. Once a most stable 0.6.0 is released, let’s leave 0.6.0 in its best condition and steps towards 0.7.0.
Here I list some of my thoughts about the major new features of the next version:
- Adding batch image conversion/processing feature (base on ImageMagick)
- Implementing multi-segment simultaneous transcoding (this will optimize speed for multi-core processors even if the encoder doesn’t support multi-threading and no doubt 4-core will have a significant speed-up)
- Implementing multi-computer transcoding / transcoding farm (will adopt controller/agent mode, agent will run on Linux natively).
- x64 version
- Fully XUL-based user interface (the classic user interface will be kept of course)
- New graphics
Of course these new features won’t come suddenly in a release. They will be implemented gradually. If you have suggestions, please just tell me.
